Based on the given information, determine which pairs of lines, if any, are parallel. If none are necessarily parallel, write “none.”

Alternate interior angles and corresponding angles have equal measure only if the lines cut by the transversal are parallel.
Conversely, if the angle measures are equal, the lines must be parallel.


    These are alternate interior angles.


    These are corresponding angles.



    In the diagram below, the measures of and are equal. Do any two lines look parallel?

    4 intersecting lines, first is horizontal on the bottom, second & third are each increasing, at different slants, fourth is decreasing, intersecting the second and third, top angle of the second & fourth line intersection is labeled 40 degrees & 1, at the intersection of the third & horizontal lines, label right of third & above horizontal, is labeled 40 degrees & 12.


     Vertical angles always have equal measure.


  5. and are supplementary.

    would be supplementary to if was equal to .

Two increasing transversal lines, c, and d, cross two horizontal lines, e, and f, creating 4 points of intersection. The angles at each intersection are labeled, starting at the top left and going clockwise as follows: Intersection of c, and e: 1, 2, 6, and 5. Intersection of, d, and e: 3, 4, 8, and 7. Intersection of c, and f: 9, 10, 14, and 13. Intersection of, d, and f: 11, 12, 16, and 15.
